CTBC Bank Corp. (USA) Celebrates New US Headquarters in Los Angeles and Renaming
15, 2013 This was the first real glimmer of hope for the Americans. The Oracle catamaran dominated the day’s first race, largely due to its performance on the upwind leg. This was in stark contrast to what transpired the first week. The #OTUSAfans are going wild!! Race 9 is a WIN for #OracleTeamUSA – good work boys! Beautiful start and solid manuevering. #cupbattle ORACLE TEAM USA (@OracleTeamUSA) September 15, 2013 Still, things had not shifted so much in the Americans’ favor that they might sweep the day’s activities. The Kiwis edged out the Americans in what proved to be a very competitive race. It was clear that the Americans had closed the gap, but it also seemed that the Americans had dug themselves too big of a hole. Standings After Race Day 6:Team New Zealand 7, Team USA 1 Sept. 18, 2013 The Kiwis nailed the start in the day’s first race and led through the finish. This moved them to eight wins, and the crew appeared determined to bring the America’s Cup home early. This is when the wind intervened and perhaps Team USA’s luck had taken effect once again. With excessive wind speeds, the second race was called off. Standings After Race Day 7:Team New Zealand 8, Team USA 1 Sept. 19, 2013 With no margin for error, Team USA nailed the start and forced the Kiwis to tack away in the process. The Americans went on to post a strong run and led from start to finish. Once again, the wind was responsible for halting a race.

Recalling that day, Wolf told NBC’s “Today” show she started “screaming (and) bawling my eyes out.” “I wasn’t sure what to do,” she said in August, shortly after her Miss Teen USA win. “So it was terrifying.” The messenger had taken great efforts to hide his online identity. But investigators were eventually able to find corresponding e-mails, IP addresses and other communications they linked to Abraham. They also tied him to online forums asking about malware, how to control webcams, and hacking into Facebook accounts. Investigators also linked him to at least eight other young women — some of them, like Wolf, from Southern California, though others were from as far away as Moldova. The victims told authorities similar stories: of a person they did not know saying, and in some cases proving, he had nude images and making demands as a result. The stalker claimed to have 1,000 photographs of one woman, the complaint said. When she asked, “Why are you doing this to me?” the response was, “I told you I’ll answer any questions after you Skype.” As an FBI agent was speaking by phone to this young woman, she logged onto her Instagram account to find it populated by nude pictures of her, the complaint said. A few young women apparently complied with the demands for a Skype session. The man promised not to record the sessions and he made it look like he was erasing the nude pictures of them.
